The cat is finally (and officially) out of the bag. After a lot of speculations, it's confirmed that Aamir Khan will play the villain in DHOOM:3.
Says Aamir himself, "It is indeed a pleasure to be working with Yashraj once again. DHOOM is a great franchise, most entertaining and full of fun. Everytime I hear the theme tune of DHOOM it brings a swing to my step. Victor's script really won me over and I look forward to working with him, sharing screen space with Jai and Ali, and, of course, working with Yashji and Adi once again."
Yash Chopra says, "It's a great pleasure to have Aamir working with YRF once again. It's even more special that he will be doing DHOOM:3. I am terribly excited with what an actor like Aamir will bring to the DHOOM franchise with his unique star power and level of performance. Adi and Victor have worked over a year to bring out, what I can now confidently say, is possibly one of the best scripts coming out of YRF and I am sure that with Aamir and Adi together, they will both create magic to give our audience one of the most exciting films they have ever seen."
Produced by Aditya Chopra, DHOOM:3 will be written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, popularly known as Victor, who has written DHOOM 1 & 2. Victor has also written and directed TASHAN.
Both Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra will continue in their now iconic roles of Jai Dixit and Ali. The film will begin shooting end of this year and is slated for a 2012 Christmas release.
